The suppressed privately printed memoir describing Plath’s last days, from an edition of 200 copies. Thomas lived in the flat below Plath’s in London in 1963, and witnessed the events leading up to and following her suicide, as well as suffering the effects of the gas which also seeped into his flat. Ted Hughes, who is portrayed in a poor light in the memoir, threatened Thomas with court action upon its publication. Thomas retracted the suggestion that Hughes had attended a party in Plath’s flat the night of her funeral, and the two he settled out of court. All remaining copies were destroyed, and this is one of the few surviving copies.

Octavo, pp. 36. Original spiral-bound red wrappers, title to front cover black. In fine condition.
